Indiana Law students can build their own plan of study by taking classes from a number of different areas, or they can choose an area of focus.
Description This course will introduce students to the federal Lanham Act and related common law doctrines that protect against consumer confusion and the appropriation of commercial goodwill. We will investigate the creation and maintenance of trademark rights, trademark registration and administrative proceedings, loss of trademark rights, infringement of trademark rights, defenses and limitations, and jurisdiction and remedies. In addition to these topics, registration, and infringement, we will consider the constitutional and economic foundations of trademark protection and evaluate current trends in trademark law as it applies in online environments.
